Abstract


This study aims at examining the effect of a proposed program of aerobic exercise in the aquatic and earthly milieus on (FBS, CHOL, TRIGL, RBC, HB, LDL, HDL). Methods: 27 volunteers were picked as a sample from the international fitness club, 14 for the earthly group and 13 for the aquatic. There were not any statistical differences between the two groups according to age, height, weight, body mass index and participation period variables. The two groups exercised for eight weeks by three training units weekly, while units’ strength ranged of 70-80% from heartbeats. The training course consists of four parts: warm – up exercise for 10 minutes, then stretching for 10 minutes, then aerobic for 30 minutes, finally cool – down exercise for 10 minutes. Three blood samples were taken from every volunteer from 8: 00-9:00 morning after 12-14 fasting hours. Statistical Analysis: Mean, standard deviation and (t) Test for paired samples were used to compare values between the start week and the last week, (t) Test for independent samples was used to compare values between the two groups at the starting point, fourth week and last one. Results: There are statistical differences between pre and post tests in variables of (HDL, FBS) = 0.05, (CHOL, TRIGL, LDL) = 0.01, the first assumption does not work for these variables while it was accepted for RBC, HB. There were statistical differences between pre and post tests for aerobic group in FBS, CHOL, TRIGL, LDL, and HDL variables (= 0.01) and HB (= 0.05). Regarding the five assumptions, it they were rejected for the whole study variables, as there were differences for the aerobic group in all variables, except CHOL.
Conclusion: The researchers recommended using aerobic exercise as an effective way on all body components (FBS, CHOL, TRIGL, HDL, LDL, HB, RBC).
